CI Compass is pleased to announce its next installment in our webinar series: NSF, the Nelson Memo, and Persistent Identifiers, with Martin Halbert, National Science Foundation (NSF) Science Advisor for Public Access, and Shawna Sadler, Head of Outreach and Partnerships at ORCID.

This webinar will be held: Tuesday, January 31, from 2 - 3 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. - noon PST.

Registration is free, and required.

Abstract: The Nelson Memo requires funding agencies like the NSF to update their public access policies and requires the adoption of persistent identifiers to ensure research integrity is maintained. Please join us for a webinar about the Nelson Memo and persistent identifiers and how they will impact your research facility. We will also discuss expectations of repositories, curation and release of the data, and an NSF timeline of changes resulting from the memo.
